Hi there guys, I want to buy my first 3DS and can't wait to get it. The thing is where I live (Poland, EU) the standard model is much cheaper than XL (about 60-80 USD cheaper) and importing from another country is not worth it due to shipment costs.

So here's my question:
Is the XL model really that much better, should I wait about 2 months longer, get more money and buy XL or should I buy standard and enjoy it now? For now I think it's better to just buy standard now and get a couple of games than XL version without any games.

However I've only played on XL model which I borrowed from a friend so far and loved it. Is the difference that big besides obvious smaller screens? What do you guys think? also forgive me my grammar but English isn't my native language

I've owned both and, for me, the XL is a huge improvement.

I prefer the 3DS XL. I've had a 3DS since release day. You can get extended battery packs for the 3DS if you feel you'd get the XL just for that reason...

The XL is a great improvement over the original 3DS. I would wait but thats just me.
